. one example, you talked about this big bird stuff, defunding pbs. the democrats are going crazy with this. listen, cutting all the funding to pbs would not fund the federal government for one hour. that's how small a percentage that is, federal funding for public broadcasting. so swing voters know this isn't serious. they know they aren't hearing serious proposals. >> i want to play for everybody those people who are for president obama, their reaktss after this disappointing show on wednesday. >> i think he could have done better. >> i think that president obama is -- needs to put his gloves on and fight back. >> i didn't know quite what was going on as far as, you know, maybe he's dealing with some crisis in the middle east. >> i think maybe he needs to rest. >> looking for easy excuses for the president there, but for those undecideds around the country, those looking for passion from a candidate, didn't mitt romney display more passion about wanting to get hired for a job? >> yeah. there's no doubt that he had a better night, and everyone has conceded that, including the pre

, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop things, i like big bird and i like you, too, but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay more. >> twitter went crazy. 17,000 tweets per minute. the hash tag, save big bird was trending. and three big handles popped up, @bigbird, @big birdromney and @fired bigbird. the middle class has been buried the last four years. jesse jackson jr. may now be back to work or won't be back to work until after the election. his wife says he's anxious to get back but he's fighting back from bipolar depression. he's on the ballot november 6. >>> and never to be mistaken for big bird, my must read, the real life discovery of the remains of a dwarf dinosaur, which seems like an oxy moron. it looked like dracula. you can get a look at it if you dare in my must read up on facebook.com/jansingco. now from the maker of splenda sweeteners, discover nectresse. the only 100% natural, no-calorie sweetener made from the goodness of fruit. the rich, sweet taste of sugar. nothing artificial. ♪ it's all that

bird. putting pbs funding aside mitt romney gave a small gift to the incumbents. big birds will show up outside romney rallies showing up signs say don't kill me. think this through. i have to say i didn't predict this was a big issue out of the debate, but there was big bird showing up at rallies. it's funny out of the debate the two big take-aways were the president lost and big bird. >> big bird the definite winner. >> and let me say as somebody who has to bring it back to the 1990s and 1980s, chicken george, 1992. george bush wouldn't debate. they sent a chicken to rallies to taunt him. >> not a good day for birds. can a bad campaigner make a good president? at least one candidate in this campaign is hoping so. >>> andrew is the fourth generation owner of the rosenwach tanks. today these tanks are shaped by hand with half-century old tools. he said you don't throw out what works but build upon it. for more watch this business on sunday morning on msnbc. [ male announcer ] you know that guy who sells those remote control helicopters at the mall. buy 'em or don't. whatever man. either
